“This album is about being bold and being brave and using your magnetism to create the world you want to live in,” Toupin said. “It came from a place of wanting to be completely direct, in a way I never felt I could before. I think it’s important to let yourself show your heart like that.”

Producing Magnetic Moves on her own helped Toupin find her authentic sound.

“Every time I’d tried working with other people, it never turned out in a way that felt right to me,” she said. “And then when I finally tried producing by myself, it felt so easy — I realized I knew exactly what I wanted everything to sound like; I just needed the confidence to actually do it.”

Toupin will be joined by Michael Chaves on her upcoming tour. Chaves has played with Leonard Cohen, Sia, John Mayer and Herbie Hancock.
